This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to source and provide customer information and advice relating to international destinations and their features. It requires the ability to identify appropriate information sources and research destinations in order to develop and update a general destination knowledge base.
International destinations and their features can include any sold by a travel organisation. Travel operators, such as travel agents and tour wholesalers, can specialise in one international destination or cover multiple destinations.
The breadth and depth of destination knowledge required will vary according to the industry sector, workplace and job role. This unit is not about having an in-depth knowledge of every destination but focuses on the ability to collect and interpret destination information.
The unit applies to frontline sales and operations personnel who operate with some level of independence and under limited supervision. This includes travel consultants, wholesale operations consultants, tour managers, and reservations sales agents.
The skills in this unit of competency must be applied in accordance with Commonwealth and State/Territory legislation, Australian standards and industry codes of practice.
No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
Skills must be demonstrated in a safe environment, incorporating the use of industry-realistic simulations and scenarios where required.
Assessment must ensure access to:
- computers, printers and information programs currently used by the travel industry to store destination information
- current destination and general product information
- generic computer software and applications:
- computer operating systems
- customers with whom the individual can interact. These can be:
- customers in an industry workplace who are assisted by the individual during the assessment process; or
- individuals who participate in role plays or simulated activities, set up for the purpose of assessment, in a simulated industry environment operated within a training organisation.
Assessors must satisfy the Standards for Registered Training Organisations’ requirements for assessors and have worked in industry for at least three years where they have applied the skills and knowledge of this unit of competency.
